hello - hope someone can help. i have a lot of work stored on disc when i
used word 97 or 98. i have just recently changed to word 2003 and when i try
to view or print it seems to have jumbled everything up and it makes no
sense. (i am writing a book and cannot afford to lose what i have done) any
suggestions most gratefully received!
thanks,
jhaz

Never ever read from, write to, or print from floppy with Word. These are
the most certain methods of ensuring document corruption.

Copy to the hard disc and work on the document from there.

This is equally relevant to other removable media such as CDRW.
